30. A whole Village
When it went up for sale, this crazy 2.5 million home in Fort Hill, North Carolina, gained some buzz in the press due to it having an entire village in the basement! Each of the storefronts opens up to another living room in their area. For instance, the soda shop has a real bar with a soda fountain with candy and ice cream. The movie theater is the gateway to the family theater space, and there is a show of the owner’s antique collection in the toy store.
In their dream-finished basement, these are all things that people like, and the village is just an imaginative way of decorating the corridor leading to different doors. Besides, all of their pinball machines and video games are available in the arcade. Even if you don’t want to turn your basement into an entire fake town, this might serve as a creative way to divide your basement room.
